Aphrodite

En riktigt galen rosa lila sminkning blev det när jag inte riktigt visste vad för typ av sminkning jag skulle hitta på. Vissa mornar har jag ingen aning om vad för typ av sminkning jag ska göra så den här morgonen bestämde jag mig för att leka loss med rosa. Man kan väl aldrig få för mycket av rosa, eller? 😉

Let’s go pink and purple crazy for a little while, that’s more or less what happened when I created this look. Some mornings I’ve no idea what kind of make up to go for so when it happened this morning I decided to use lots of pink. You can’t get too much of pink right, or? 😉

Questo trucco è successo quando non ho avuto minima idea cosa inventarmi. Quella mattina non riuscivo a capire da dove iniziare per cui ho deciso di usare tanta rosa. Alla fine ho aggiunto anche qualche strass e questo è il risultato. Non puoi mai avere troppa rosa, vero? 😉

  1. Prime the eyelids with Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer potion. Highlight under the eyebrows with a matte white eyeshadow.
  2. Mix a matte light pink and a pink eyeshadow and blend them gently in above the crease.
  3. Now mix two more pink eyeshadows, also these ones matte, and blend them into the crease.
  4. Apply NYX jumbo eye pencil in MILK over the mobile eyelid and over it apply Motives Cosmetics pressed eyeshadow Pink Diamond.
  5. Apply an eyeliner using Stila’s stay all day waterproof liquid eyeliner in Intense Black and make a wing.
  6. Line the waterline with NYX MILK pencil and apply it also along the lower lashline. Over it on the waterline and right under the lower lashline apply apply Motives Cosmetics pressed eyeshadow Fantasy.
  7. Under Fantasy apply and blend out Motives Cosmetics pressed eyeshadow Aphrodite. Apply ut also under the eyeliner wing.
  8. In the inner corner of the eye apply a white loose highlighting powder. I used the one from Born Pretty Store.
  9. Apply two small body jewels, one in the inner corner of the eye and one where the eyeliner wing finish.
  10. Apply mascara and put on Motives Cosmetics false eyelasehs nr 113.
  11. As a face contour use Bronzing Veil. Apply the pink blush and highlight the cheekbones with the white loose highlighting powder.
  12. On the lips apply Motives for Lala Mineral Lipstick in Beso.

Addicted to you

Jag och min familj är mitt uppe i att flytta ut från vår lägenhet då vi snart ska börja renovera den samtidigt som fasad och tak ska göras om. Det kommer bli många tuffa månader framöver…så jag hoppas verkligen att allt kommer att gå vägen…
Barnen är nu tillbaka på dagis. Alma tyckte det var jättekul medan Oliver inte alls ville utan var ledsen, så det var tungt att lämna honom. Men jag vet att han snabbt kommer in i sin dagliga rutin.
Idag visar jag en soft ljuslila sminking som kan va riktigt snygg nu till sommaren. En version med neutrala läppar och en med serisrosa.
Ha nu en bra vecka!

Me and my family are in the middle of moving out from our apartment since we’re going to renovate it at the same time that the roof and facade will be redone. It’s going to be many tough months to come…but I hope everything will go in the right way…
The kids are now back in the kindergarten. Alma was very happy to be back while Oliver wasn’t, he cried so it was hard to leave him this morning. Fortunately I know he’ll like it and be back in his daily routine soon.
Today I show you this soft purple make up that can be really nice for the summer. One version with neutral lips and the other with pink.
Have a great week!

Io e mia famiglia siamo nel mezzo di traslocare dal nostro appartamento. Inizieremo tra poco dei lavori esterni e allo stesso tempo faremo dei lavori interni. Saranno dei mesi difficili e spero solo che andrà tutto bene…
I bambini sono tornati all’asilo stamani. Alma era contenta di tornare mentre Oliver meno. Lui piangeva per cui era difficile lasciarlo. Fortunatamente so che piace e che tra poco sarà tornato nel suo routine giornaliero.
Oggi vi faccio vedere questo trucco viola chiaro che portrebbe essere molto carino ora per l’estate. Una versione con le labbra neutre e l’altra con le labbra rosa.

Motives Cosmetics

Så äntligen fick jag ordning på alla kort och swatcher! Jag beställde dessa godingar från Motives Cosmetics för några veckor sedan och kände mig som ett litet barn på julafton när jag fick hem produkterna. Vad jag tycker om allt kommer jag att tala om efterhand jag använder de. Men mitt första intryck är att de verkar otroligt bra. Ögonskuggorna är fantastiska och så lätta att jobba med. För att inte tala om läppstiften som håller hur länge som helst. Färgerna är dessutom underbara. Jag har redan börjat förbereda några nya sminkningar som jag hoppas kunna visa er snart.

Finally I got all of my photos and swatches organized! I ordered these babies from Motives Cosmetics a couple of weeks ago and felt like a child on Christmas when they arrived. I’ll tell you more about what I think of them gradually when I use them. My first impression though is that they seem to be really great. The eyeshadows are fantasic and so easy to work with. And the lipsticks stays on for hours and the colors are wonderful. I’ve already started to prepare a few new looks that I hope to be able to share with you soon.

Finalmente sono riuscita ad organizzare tutte le mie foto e swatches. Ho ordinato questi tesori da Motives Cosmetics un paio di settimane fa e mi sentivo come un bambino a Natale quando sono arrivati. Vi farò sapere cosa penso di questo prodotti via via che li provo. Ma la mia prima impressione è che sembrano davvero ottimi. Gli ombretti sono fantastici e sono facili con cui lavorare. I rossetti sono stupendi e durano a lungo ed in più i colori sono stupendi. Ho iniziato a prepare un paio di trucchi nuovi e spero di poterli condividere presto con voi.
